I do so hate commercial radio most of the time, but holiday weekends like this make them a little more bearable. Since formats, programming, stunts, and gimmicks are pretty much duplicated nationwide; your local urban station, like the DC and Baltimore stations I can pick up, is possibly doing a all-mixer weekend... They still place most of the mainstream, everyday stuff, but since they hafta fill a whole weekend, they're usually given a little more freedom to dig... With the right mixers, these can actually come off quite lovely. The bama on 92-Q who played "I'm Not Having It" gets two cool ponts for the obscure throwback jont (okay, maybe not THAT obscure, but c'mon-- nobody plays that anymore) ; him and the dude at the Roots/ Kweli/ Floetry show at Nation in Southeast DC who was rocking the Joe Namath L.A. Rams jont (I never knew he palyed there).



Book is doing the thizzle, or simply thizzling, on WPGC a few times this weekend to make sure their mix weekend is done right; with his appearance on the show this weekend, his return to the airwaves is complete... Welcome back, dawg...
